Songfacts®:

  • This is the lead single from KT Tunstall's fourth studio album Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon. Tunstall described the two part set as "full of songs from the heart." The first batch focuses on the themes of mortality, and the second evokes a more ethereal mood.
  • Tunstall started this song just before the death of her father, and finished it after splitting up with her husband Luke Bullen. "It's probably the most personal song on the album," she said. "So it was absolutely birthed out of the intensity of those two things happening. It was real medicine for me, that song." The single was debuted on April 29, 2013, on BBC Radio 2, during the Ken Bruce Show.
  • Tunstall recorded two versions of this song, a more stripped back, melancholic one with PJ Harvey collaborator John Parish on drumming duty, which can be found on the album. The second 'band jam' version, which was recorded live in Tucson, Arizona, was chosen for the radio release.
  • The music video was directed by Isaac Ravishankara, who previously worked with The Lumineers and Ellie Goulding, and was shot in Arizona's Tucson Desert.
